wearing rogue

We went up to the mountains for a few days this week to play in the snow. It was fairly warm, in the high 40s, low 50s and I was very comfortable in just Rogue over my long-sleeved shirt. It is surprisingly warm. I don't know if it's the thickness of the yarn or the acrylic content or what, but it's quite comfy.

I did have one problem with it, some of the backstitching on the zipper got caught on the edge of a counter or something and has been pulled out. I also realized that I should have backstitched at the edge away from the zipper rather than right next to it. I'm going to redo the backstitching and take out the old. I'm tempted to redo the whole thing because the edge of the sweater doesn't quite cover the bottom of the zipper but that is just too painful to contemplate.

With all the wear I got out of it, there aren't any pictures of me in it. Ah well!

  1. I have to ask, would you be willing to share the pattern you used for that sweater? I have been so jealous of it ever since you started making it, and I'd really love to make one of my own. 🙂

  2. I have to ask, would you be willing to share the pattern you used for that sweater? sure, tt's the Rogue sweater from Girl from Auntie. I used the cardigan modifications, the original pattern is a pullover.

  3. I'm glad to hear you are finding it wearable. 🙂 I want to see more pictures. More pictures, really? I figured everyone was getting sick of it. 🙂

  4. if you are wearing it a ton, you may as well re-do the zipper. otherwise every time you put it on you'll wince at the imperfection. I hate ripping out but I'm always glad I did once it's re-done properly. 🙂
